The fundamentals of teaching, a five-step model to put the research evidence into practice, Mike Bell

Teachers are bombarded with advice about how to teach. The Fundamentals of Teaching cuts through the confusion by synthesising the key findings from education research and neuroscience to give an authoritative guide. It reveals how learning happens, which methods work best and how to improve any students' learning. Using a tried-and-tested, Five-Step model for applying the methods effectively in the classroom, Mike Bell shows how you can improve learning and eliminate time-consuming, low-effect practices that increase stress and workload. He includes case studies from teachers working across different subjects and age groups which model practical strategies for: Prior Knowledge Presenting new material Setting challenging tasks Feedback and improvement Repetition and consolidation. This powerful resource is highly recommended for all teachers, school leaders and trainee teachers who want to benefit from the most effective methods in their classrooms
